Dr. Odor said my sciatic nerve compression wasn't worsened by truck driving. I know he is considered a friendly doctor but he purposely ignored cervical stenosis just to make the courts believe my symptoms are vague which is how he described my sciatic nerve compression. I wonder black people he does like that? I wonder why the following the truth part in the scientific method?

Dr. Odor is the only Physician that I would trust with my back, and have for a number of years. He was the reason that my wife today has a corrected neck that was incorrectly done by others in the past. He has done fusions at two levels of my back which has corrected the pain and restored my ability to do more with my life. Anytime I am asked about my back and who corrected it he will be the only one I would ever recommend. Honest and forthright about the issues and does not go directly to surgery. Talks to you about your concerns until you understand the issues at hand and treatment options. You can losses with him or his staff they make you feel comfortable always considerate of you and they always greet you with a smile and name.

Dr Odor did my Lumbar Fusion in June 2001. I am now having other problems and am so glad he is still in practice. I trust no one else to help me.

Dr Odor is willing to listen and discuss all treatment options. I had surgery and at last my leg pain is completely gone. His staff is very kind and I think his nurse practitioner Brandi is very smart.

As far as I'm concerned there's no better spine doctor in the region. I had my first fusion in 1994 and returned this year for a fusion at another level. Unfortunately I will have another fusion soon - none at his fault. He takes as much time as needed in your appointment. You will not feel rushed and he goes the extra mile in putting you at ease. The Spine Hospital is a top notch facility. His staff is awesome and without equal in care and concern. I give him my highest recommendation.

I went to dr. odor for a second opinion for my back injury. The first dr. Told me I needed to get used to the pain. Dr. Odor identified and with minor surgery, repaired a torn and partially herniated disc. It's been three years now, and I've been pain free. I'm very active and can do anything as before the injury.

I could not have gotten a better Spine specialist any where! Dr. Odor sees each of his patients as people and NOT just another case or paycheck. His staff are just as caring and personable as he is!

Dr. Odor is an excellent doctor -- very wise and knowledgeable about spine concerns. He's easy to talk with and explains my health situation with clarity. I especially like it that he knows me when I come in -- I'm not just another patient. He's like no other doctor I see today because of his excellence in surgery and patient care -- before and after surgery. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Odor did a wonderful job, his professionalism is unsurpassed and I totally trust him with all decisions. It has been a life changing event and with a Pars Defect, which I had is 2nd worst operation you can put your body through. Now, a month later the symptoms of what I dealt with ever since my accident are gone. He has been there the whole way with pain management and now beginning my rehabilitation. I will recommend Dr. Odor to anyone who has any defect or injury of the spine.
